I came close (or so I thought) to picking up an M44 for 75 bucks. Was in a pawn shop when a guy walked in looking to sell his, and the shop guy offered him $60. I told the guy I'd give him 75, lemme run to the ATM. He said okay, but when I got back he had left.

The M44s carbines got the least wartime wear, generally, and anything postwar

is easier to find with matching serial#s, if that's important to you.

The longer barreled 91-30s are going to be more accurate, generally.

Depends what you want most, there's such a great selection out there.

A few Combloc countries made M44s postwar, I've got a 1955 Polish M44

as nice as my Russian, and in much newer condition. M44s make a nice

truck gun or Boar hunter. Muzzle blast is hilariously huge on the 38s and 44s.

Yeah, you CAN find them cheaper, if you search longer. I would be willing

to pay up to 125$ for a really clean 91-30, and up to 200$ for an all matching,

clean,newer (go home and scour the cosmoline out) M44. As in ALL Milsurps,

be absolutely sure you clean it carefully, especially around the chamber,

before you load round 1...

Need a reason to get your 03 C&R FFL? Just checked the website for a company I have bought from. 91/30, with all accesories, sling, bayonet, $79.95.

Yeah, I gave $120 for mine. Guess I did overpay just a bit, but I got to hand pick from a rack, and I've extremely happy, so it's all relative. Got the full kit included (except the ammo pouch), and gave $150 total for all that plus a can of ammo. So it all evens out anyway. $30 for 440 rounds. Good enough.

If you got the rifle, accessories and that much ammo for that price then i dont think you over paid. The store where i got mine was running a special like that too.

I went through every single rifle they had (about 200) and worked the bolts, looked through bores, and inspected every aspect of them. I think i got the pic of the litter.

Here this should make your choice a little tougher !
